Human behavior is at times questionable and in may cases a result of conditions that seem to slip by unnoticed. Daylight Savings Time is one of those conditions. This shift in time change seem like a simple and harmless factor yet its impact on the body can vacillate from mild to extreme according to the individual. The following excerpt is taken from an article by Laura Schocker:

These time changes play out in our body a bit like jet lag might, explained Michael Decker, Ph.D., an associate professor at Georgia State University and spokesman for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Springing forward is like flying from west to east -- say from California to Washington, D.C. -- while falling back is like flying from east to west. And as frequent flyers can attest, the eastbound change is much harder to acclimate to than the westbound for most. "The adjustment is much milder in the fall than it is in the springtime," Decker says. And that means we may be experiencing a collective, but mild, jet lag this Sunday, which will clear up in 24 hours or so. Full article

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but generally folks don't discuss such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I actually believed you'd have something interesting to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could possibly fix if you weren't too busy looking for attention.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I came across this in my search for something relating to this.
